Nice pictures, but there are lots of books about Asian food with nice pictures. Many of his recipes are more fusion than pure Vietnamese. Does stand out in terms of swearing for a cookery book. I prefer Luke Nguyen's books for both food and capturing the spirit of Vietnam.

Format: Paperback
This isn't your usual type of cook book. There are lots of very interesting, tasty and unusual dishes (that I've not seen at my local Vietnamese restaurant). But it also gives you a great insight into the author (almost like a very short autobiography). Apart from being an excellent cook book, there are lots of hilariously funny stories from the author. I would highly recommend this book. Please note that there's some strong language used in the book. I didn't find this a problem as it made some of the stories even funnier. My only minor query with the book is that some of the photos do not necessarily correspond to the recipes on the same page. So this might be slightly confusing to somebody trying to follow a few of the recipes. But this is very minor and if you have a basic understanding of Vietnamese cooking then this won't be a problem.

Just to make sure no-one else makes the same mistake - this is the paperback edition of Bobby Chinn's excellent existing book, "Wild Wild East", not a new title per-se!

Wild, Wild East: Recipes and Stories from Vietnam

However, if you don't own the original, this is a fantastic book - Bobby Chinn is a legend.
If any readers are lucky enough to find themselves in Hanoi, Vietnam, don't miss his restaurant. The book brings back wonderful memories.

Nice paperwork print - a classy feel, well worth the money.

Format: Paperback
more a story about being a restaurateur in Vietnam than an actual cookbook.
Some useful stuff, but hardly covers the basic ingredients, for example he doesn't use Vietnamese mint (Persicaria odorata) in any recipes.
